Win a cruise!

I was lucky enough to win not one but TWO cruises, in just three days! I couldn’t believe my luck and since then I’ve decided to enter every cruise competition I can find on the internet.

I decided to create this list of every online cruise competition to make it easier for others to find cruise competitions and enter them online as well. I’ve even provided the answers to any quiz questions for you. Although I can’t guarantee that they’re correct! If you happen to be lucky enough to win a cruise for two and don’t have anyone to take, just shout this way because I’d love to come. Haha!

Competitions with text and postal entries

Some cruise competitions are only open to people entering via text or post. I usually don’t enter these as there is a charge to enter by text and I think that entering by post is a bit of a faff. If I ever have to post anything it usually stays in my handbag for a few weeks until I pass a post box!

However, if you’d like to enter the competitions too, then please go ahead. The links to the competition details are below.

Win a Uniworld River Cruise

Prize: A 7-night cruise for two people worth up to £5,000, courtesy of Uniworld

Cost to enter: £2 by text message or free by post

  1. I looked at MSC Virtuosa which is billed as all inclusive , but on their site I noticed that several eating options were classed as chargeable , for instance the burgers and hot dogs at the pool . These have always been included on all other lines I have been with. Be nice to see a report on this!!!!

    • Hi John. I’ll be on MSC Virtuosa next week so I’ll have more info for you then. Be sure to follow me on social media for updates, Instagram is where I like to hang out most: https://www.instagram.com/cruisemummy/ Jenni

    Well done on winning some great prize cruises. Sounds amazing 🙂
    I’d love to know, did you win them through your cruise company ie for employees only or were you really lucky in beating thousands of entrants via an entry form?
    Was there any skill involved?

    Good luck for your winning your next cruise!

    • Thank you. There are some competitions which are only for travel agents and while I do enter those too, all the ones I post here are ones that anyone in the UK can enter. If any skill’s involved it’s only ever a quick Google of the answer which I do for you to save you time 🙂 Good luck!
